Storyline

A group of hip day travellers embark on a two-day hike into the jungle, in search of a lost Malay village. They do this for the benefit of a young Asian-American woman from the United States, Charity, who is intent on finding the resting place of her birth parents who went missing in this same place 25 years ago. But the trip turns out to be more than they bargained for. Very soon, the group find themselves amidst strange surroundings, being hunted by a young woman who carries a deep, dark secret.

wow, this was really bad!
8 February 2004 | by (Matango Island West) – See all my reviews

Now, I LOVE bad movies but even I couldn't stomach this one. It consists largely of a group of total strangers who travel together to an obscure corner of Malaysia, to hunt up the long-missing mother of the group leader. They promptly get lost in the middle of nowhere and spend the entire time trekking through the woods, arguing in quacking, droning voices that made me want to pound my head on the floor to get away from the sound. They are warned by a passing priest that the area they are entering is "unclean" but they go right ahead. Sure enough, they are killed off one at a time by SOMETHING IN THE WOODS that looks like a beautiful woman having a really bad day. WILL ANYONE SURVIVE? I didn't care by the time the movie was half over. I imagine you won't, either. Bad acting, bad FX, bad character development, bad everything.
